This Basics of Mining Set consists of three best-selling books on the basics of mining. Save 35% by purchasing as a set.

Introduction to Mineral Exploration provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of mineral exploration. It covers not only the nature of mineral exploration, but also considers other factors essential to successful exploration, from target evaluation to feasibility studies for extraction and production. The book includes six detailed case studies, selected for their range of problems and the considerations they present to the mineral explorationist.

Mining Explained: Discovery, Extraction, Refining, Marketing and Investing explains mining in layman's terms. The scientific, engineering, and fiscal processes employed in the transformation of a mine prospect to a metal producer are all here, but simplified and spelled out in English. The text covers basic geology, ore deposits, high-tech processing, sampling and drilling, mining methods, processing ore, mining and the environment, the mining team, the business of mining, feasibility, metal markets, making sense of the numbers, and investing in mining. The glossary helps shed light on the myriad geological and financial terms of the industry.

Mineral Exploration and Mining Essentials is an indispensable primer for anyone interested in the mineral exploration and mining industry but who lacks experience in the field. Consider this book if you need to make informed mining-related investment decisions; want to better evaluate mineral-development proposals; or are interested in the basics of exploration, discovery, geology, and mining.
